I’M TIRED OF HEARING IT!

April 23, 2012

Obama has taken credit for the demise of Osama Bin Laden.  Of course, any President is the final authority for all good and bad, but the way he and his team are treating this act you’d think that Obama himself single-handedly took out Bin Laden with a dull and bent P-38.  The nightly liars and pens for the bird cage liners, of course, only help advance the myth.

Vice President Joe Biden, referring to President Barack Obama’s decision to kill Osama bin Laden said, “You can go back 500 years.  You cannot find a more audacious plan”.

First, we must understand that the decision was not Obama’s!  In conjunction with the CIA and informants, the team commander identified the long sought target.  The SEAL team planned the mission and were anxiously ready to complete it long before anybody in Washington D.C was informed.  Only because Bin Laden was such a high value target did the operation get the attention of the president.

Second, Obama vacillated for over 16 hours before committing his political image and allowing the Navy SEALS to do the job for which they so vigorously train.  This is a man who has to assemble a five member support group each morning to help him decide whether to tie his shoes right-over-left or left-over-right.  As State Senator in Illinois, he voted present over 130 times because he didn’t want to be publicly viewed as taking a  pro or con stand.

Third, the U.S. Navy SEALS perform high-impact covert missions around the globe on a regular basis.  Taking out Osama Bin Laden was little more than a regular work day for this team.  This is what they do!  The operation should not be a campaign credit for the president.  This was just one of thousands of missions carried out since the formation of the SEALS starting with Team 1 in 1962.  Most get no attention due to the extreme sensitivity of the operations.

Obama has demeaned and divided the American people.  He causes blacks to blame and hate whites for their troubles because of skin color.  He pits the have-less and have-naughts against achievers.  He goads youth to blame elderly for their respective statures hoping that the young will not have awareness that they, too, will age.  He has destroyed this country in less than four years and he is seeking anything positive to mask that fact so he can be re-elected and effect the complete demise of our nation.  His goal is to eliminate our sovereignty in favor of rule by a global governing system.

He can’t bellow the virtues of his Stimulus Plan because it didn’t stimulate anything other than DNC and Obama campaign donors.

Wall Street bailout – Helped the “C” level bosses (the reviled 1 %) retain their bonuses for failing their companies and their investors.

Mortgage bailout – Helped the “C” level bosses (1%) of both banks and pseudo-government agencies retain their bonuses.  More former homeowners are living in their cars or in shelters now than ever before.

Auto bailouts – Helped the UAW bosses (1%) retain their bonuses while American taxpayers bought the medical and retirement benefits for the union workers before GM and Chrysler declared bankruptcy.

Green energy companies receiving grants and tax-payer backed loans have a greater failure rate than success.  Billions of dollars have been wasted on solar companies, green auto development, battery research, wind farms etc. with virtually no repayment or beneficial return other than campaign donations.

Obama can’t tout the benefits of Cash-for-Clunkers because it did nothing other than boost the two-month auto sales figures which then crashed for the following six months.  The program cost non-purchasing tax-payers approximately $24,000 per unit sold.

Health care reform – doctors are concerned that it will take twice as long to pay for their education because of government capped fees and services.  Seniors are justly scared of the ramifications and younger people are beginning to see and fear their heath care future.

Employment – even by manipulating the figures presented, there are fewer people working and more on Welfare than ever before.  Among those who are still working, or working once again, many are only working part-time because employers can avoid paying health insurance which is rising and will skyrocket after 2014.

While raving about how he eliminated the threat of Bin Laden, Obama continues to blame every one of the country’s ills on the virus known as George W. Bush.  That virus is not covered under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

GUARDING THE LARGESS

April 14, 2012

The lavishly outrageous expenditures made by the General Services Administration (GSA) on a couple or few conferences are commanding attention right now.  Recently, the costs to move an employee from Colorado to Hawaii surfaced.  Little, however, has been disclosed about the relocation of the “Prince”, a GSA real estate official other than the $330,000 taxpayer cost and the fact that he left the agency about a year afterward.  More will filter through the fine screen of government misdirection within the next few weeks if Darrel Issa can cause Jeff Neely, (a career senior executive with the Public Buildings Service who was assigned to organize the conference) to cough up any information about the embezzlement misuse of funds entrusted to his care.

However, while the American public is up in arms about this, what is going on behind the scenes is, if anything, worse.  Once again, it is a case of “Hey, look over there”, and the brownie is missing from your lunch tray.

GSA is an independent bureaucracy of the government.  Congress established the GSA in 1949 as an agency to manage and support the basic functioning of the other federal agencies.  The GSA’s functions include provision of office supplies, transportation, office space and communication for government employees.  Additionally, they are charged with government-wide cost-minimizing policies.  Typical of how government works and grows, we have a mismanaged government management agency to oversee the mismanagement of the other government agencies.  The only oversight for the overseer is an often blind and clueless, care-for-naught Congress.

Since the story broke, the Inspector General, Brian Miller, promised to look deep into the policies and procedures of the agency.   Where was the IG prior to the YouTube explosion showing off how partying federal workers are abusing their positions and waxing the taxpayers?  There didn’t seem to be any concern before the idiots caused the self-exposure by calling the rest of us fools on the Internet.

Darrel Issa is unquestionably one of the few representatives from my home state for whom I have respect.  He is strong in his questioning of government wrongdoing without concern for the offender’s political affiliation.  However, he and his Government Reform Committee simply cannot adequately investigate even a tiny portion of abuse presented by the current administration.  Trying to extract a modicum of truth from the equivocating Eric Holder, any of the Fast and Furious gang or any of the GSA senior officials is reason to limit government employees’ use of their Fifth Amendment rights.

The Inspector General doesn’t seem to be concerned about government abuse and the agencies themselves don’t care about fiscal accountability.  Keep in mind, GSA is the current government funded bureaucratic agency in the spotlight.  What is going on with the rest of the tax payer funded, unrestrained alphabet agencies: HUD, FBI, CIA, TSA, NSA, NPR, PBS, MSNBC…?  Starting to see why the national debt is so out of control?  Each bureaucratic agency has a lot of waste.  They waste money then ask congress to appropriate more the next fiscal year so that there is more to waste with some left over to use for the intended purpose.

Again I state, I’m not defining all government abuse as the product of this administration because it has been going on for decades, by both parties and various administrations.  As the years go, it just gets worse.  Let’s quit blaming others of the past and take control of the situation rather than exacerbating it.  Instead of manipulating the job numbers by dropping discouraged workers from the data and hiring people into citizen funded positions, acknowledge the problem and correct it.  Why don’t we cut the size and scope of government until it is manageable and accountable?  Why don’t “We the People” regain control of our representatives?

As with most tax appropriators, our president and congress want, instead, to grow government making it easier to hide fraud and abuse.  The result of which is a need for more tax revenue – throttling development of the economy and individual prosperity – taking away the opportunities offered by our Constitution.

DHS AND GUN RIGHTS

April 7, 2012

DHS recently contracted the purchase of another 450 million rounds of JHP ammunition. At the same time a former Obama secretary, Van Jones, touts an uprising titled “American Spring” or “Rebuild the Dream rally” or “an Egypt-styled ‘Arab Spring,'” designed to rally the 99 percent.  We have seen the devastation and wanton murder of people throughout the Middle East brought about by the Arab Spring and it looks like it could be coming to a community near you, soon.

Van Jones, is a civil rights activist and advocate of violence to achieve a goal.  Like our current President and many we find in his administration, Jones is more than willing to use our rights, privileges and freedoms against us to overthrow the traditional Democratic Republic that has served us well for over 200 of the past 236 years.

Defense contractor ATK announced the award of an “Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement for .40 caliber hollow point ammunition” by the DHS.

By contract, ATK will provide Homeland Security with 450 million rounds of ammunition over a five year period.  DHS also purchased 200 million rounds in 2009.  There is currently an open bid for up to 175 million rounds of .233 caliber ammo.

JHP (jacketed hollow point) ammunition is not designed for target practice or enhancing the skills of federal agents.  The design of this projectile is for one purpose only – to cause massive trauma and damage to animal tissue.  The purpose for this projectile is to fully disable through maiming or death any living organism into which it is projected.

A 40 caliber bullet is .400 in. in diameter, or just under ½ inch.  When it strikes an object, the hollow point causes it to expand to approximately twice its original diameter.  Expect the missile, flying at 500’/sec., to increase to ¾ inch by the time it has passed halfway through your torso and before it is stopped by a bone or an organ.  The intent is lethal.  This is not crowd control.  These are not bean bags.  This is not a water cannon.  These are not smoke or tear gas grenades.  This is not part of the military or defense contract.  This is intended death of civilians by a rapacious government.

 

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set.  We’ve got to have a Civilian National Security Force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as our military”.  Barack Obama – July 2, 2008.

 

At the same time as the latest government procurement, FEMA emergency camps are being outfitted to warehouse hundreds of thousands of civilians “in time of need”, $1.5 billion tax dollars are being spent to collect and store personal data in Utah and the Attorney General is acting in concert with the U.N. and NATO, outside the parameters of the Constitution and against the Second Amendment to confiscate all defensive weapons from We the People.

Doesn’t it just make you want to elect Barack Obama for four more years?  Perhaps given that time, he could become a permanent fixture in Washington D.C., a Castro, a Chavez or a Stalin.  With almost half of the American people already reliant on some form of government stipend or subsidy, who will be left in four years to counter the movement once we are all gelded, dependent and defenseless?
